Being a beauty editor for most of my career, I am no stranger to make up! And now that I am Editor-in-Chief of Calyxta.com, I am even more immersed in beauty than ever before.
I realized that as I get older, the more I stick to a particular look, and although I am happy with my signature lined eyes and nude lips, make up is meant to be fun so it's good to switch it up once in awhile. NIVEA gave me the perfect opportunity to do so when they challenged me to recreate Cara Delevingne's ROCK ROYALTY look. It was totally outside of my make up comfort zone ( Hello Bright Pink Lip!) but I think I managed to get it right- but not without a few mistakes along the way. I totally hate having to use an oil based make up remover whenever I mess up while applying makeup, so NIVEA's Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes are a godsend. It wipes off beauty boo boo's in a flash without ruining your look.
I got a box of make up with my wipes- basically everything I needed to recreate the look they assigned to me. Click on the video to watch me go from barefaced to Rock Royalty. Aaaahhh, the power of make up!
